Television: - you should be missing it.

Books:
Erik Larson - In the Garden of Beasts
Jim Harrison - Many to choose from (try the library)
Sudhir Venkatesh - Gang Leader for a Day

Music: - Give the New Orleans Suspects a whirl...

Mind: - Order a DIY shroom kit

What is tv? If it means sitting in front of a screen flicking through endless channels in hopes of finding something that is at least watchable, with commercials- then I'm with you.

However, even if it is the above, there is mucho talent working in the medium, making lots of good and sometimes great content. Shoot, of all the mediums this year I think it was the most prolific and had the most quality.

I've read In the Garden of Beasts, but not the other two books (2013 culture, silly). Which Jim Harrison do you rec?

Not bad t'all > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMp_NGfM1IM (but not 2013)

And no shroomin' for me until the kidlets are out of the house! But, not a bad idea.

E- I wish I could find the second episode of this. It was one of the best of anything on this year, but this premiere is very good > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzMviJw6MFo

Here is a link to a Harrison review:

I'll have to check the library and see if I can reserve it. He is a prolific writer and I hesitate to cherry pick his stuff. Here is a wiki link to the author:

His new book Brown Dog would be a good start.


I abstained for about two decades while I was raising a family.....

That is the BBC version- from which the American series 'borrowed' the concept. I haven't seen any of the BBC series.
